Got to agree with KW on this one, assuming his saddle position/cleats aren't way off I don't really thing there would any major losses of power with bars way out in space. However, what I'm wondering about is the proportions of this man, either he is very tall and riding a small kids size frame with a huge amount of setback and tons of post showing or he has an amazing disproportionate body structure.

Preview of what we will be showing in our next issue here... This is the second year we have shot all the team bikes, full shots will be in the next issue.

https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set ... 123&type=1

Also of note: we (actually Nick who you know as Tinea Pedis) will be doing a daily analysis on the power files a rider from OPQS after everyday on our website www.ridemedia.com.au

OPQS has kindly agreed to share their Quarq power files with us each day so that those watching the race can get a picture of the efforts this race involves. Should be interesting stuff. I'm sure Nick will enjoy some discussion here on what he writes each day.

And Cav wins in San Luis Image

Can't be too bad going from Di2 for however many years, back to mechanical and to a different shifting style at that. And he beat Sagan

Andy Schleck has a custom painted Trek Madone 7. Also a pretty poor finish in regards to the logos on the inside of shorts. The Anomio Watches logo gets cut short. Surely a pro teams kit should be finished better than this. Looks similar to how the replica kits are made ex-Asia

He does doesn't he? Maybe he managed to carry it through from last year better than before and didn't give in to too many off season temptations for once.

Yes, not directly behind him, but that is Sagan four riders back. I think he was just making a general statement that he beat Sagan.

That is a bit deceiving, as the TMR01 have 74 degree STA across the board which is very steep.

Is it me, or does it look like Cav's chain is off the ring? or sucked up like old school chain suck. Maybe just a bad angle and odd background
